Mal and Jen have been added.

A warm welcome to Lyn Deakin our newest member. (And at the same time one of the oldest having been a member of MBC when he was landlord of the Bowl in Hand in the 1990s.)

Past President of the club, Gordon Cox has died. His funeral will take place at St Peter's Church on 10th August at 12 noon.

A big thank you to all the teams who have arrange their matches and completed them with over a week to go. We can now look forward to great 3rd round matches.

The members of the Board, at the July meeting voted to continue following the existing protocols.

Well done Mick and Jan who beat Keith and Margi in the preliminary qualifying round of the cup competition.

The draw has been made for the knockout competition, which is for the benefit of those members who have taken part in the Roll Ups since 1st June. We have tried to keep partners and selected pairs together. Mike and Eleanor were the reserves who have stepped in at the last minute but will happily step out again if necessary. 

Hazel and Eleanor are looking to form a team to take on the men. Experienced players like, Mel, Mike and Mick will not be in the team to enable the newer members to take part.

The Official Opening 

At 6.00 pm on Tuesday 14th July, John Carter, Chair of the QE, Trust unveiled the plaque to mark the opening of our new extension. The members of the Trust Board joined the MBC Board to celebrate the event. President Peter said how much we valued the close relationship which exists between the two organisations.  John said how proud the Trust were to have helped develop a world class facility in Mansfield, which continues to serve not only the interests and reputation of bowls but also the QEs pupils and the wider community. 

Mike Lake thanked John (the builder) and John (the joiner) and all the craftsmen who have given us a wonderful addition to our Pavilion. He also thanked, Eleanor, Mel, Hazel Mick and Jan Cooper, Ivan and Dawn, Paul and Jan, David and Tiggy and all the members whose hard work ensured that all the important extra tasks were completed. Eleanor, Hazel and Jan provided a quality buffet, while Woody and Dawn served drinks on the splendid new patio.

    The Board have agreed that the Pavilion will remain closed until we have further clarification from the environmental health authority. The existing protocols will  continue to be followed                



This morning, 29th June, after months of coping with the worst, wettest winter and then the Corona virus lockdown, John Carter the builder and Mike Hulme the architect finally handed over the completed building. We now have the keys but are still not able to use the superb facilities. Hopefully after the 4th things may ease up a little.

The Extension is looking wonderful.
